Lot 023: 1974 HONDA CB350F
The biggest market in the States during the early 1970's was for 350cc class machines and although Honda dominated it with their twin cylinder CB350 technically more sophisticated machines from Kawasaki and Suzuki threatened their dominance. Consequently Honda developed a single cam across the frame four displacing 347cc. The new model was introduced during 1972 but struggled to establish itself despite its competence in all areas, largely due to a higher price without a significant advantage in performance when compared to the existing twin. The model was never officially imported into the UK and is consequently extremely rare on the British market. This red example is described by the vendor as having a very good engine, good mechanics and cycle parts and fair paintwork and brightwork. It is accompanied by a Swansea V5C, an MOT certificate valid until June 2008 and a number of expired MOT certificates, the earliest dating from 1997 when the machine is believed to have been imported into the UK.
